Who wouldn't want to enjoy life? Who wouldn't want to go mob vacation? But even if we do, even if we. Want to. Enjoy our lives as much as possible it. Is often not the case because we simply cannot afford it.

Living the uncomplicated life will give you time to find the unusual opportunities and fine deals as well as time to hike the mountains and deserts and lie on beautiful beaches. You won’t have to fill up all your fun into a weekend. You can have every day to play and enjoy life.

It depends on which aspect of life do you want to enjoy. If you want to enjoy travelling around the world --- you'll definitely need a large amount of money. If you just want to enjoy a life with your loved one, you can go to a quiet beach and enjoy swimmming there with them for a vacation. You don't have to spend much to be happy, it is how you want to do it. Different people different way of enjoying a vacation. But if you really wish to have a grand vacation, of course you need a large amount of me --- which you have to save for because you don't have it yet and I don't have it either ... so I'm saving now.

yeah, i guess that really depends where you won't need as much money... hehe but it would probably be hard as everything seems to come with a price.

For me it is a wide meaning when we say that word of 'enjoy'. We do not have to have money to enjoy our life. If we are happy with our life or even if we welcome and overcome the difficulties we can say that we feel enjoy with it.For me myself do my own things and see others happy will make me feel enjoy not just having vacation and play around.

my friends and i are often in this situation, we like to challenge ourselves. we often go to the mall, stay there the whole day, have our breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner there, with only 100 pesos approx. 2$ i think) in out pocket. food is not cheap here, sometimes it takes 100 pesos per head for 1 cup of rice, 1 kind of viand, and a little appetizer. drinks are not included there. but despite the fact that we only have 600 pesos to feed 6 mouths, we still enjoy it. haha

Lack of money? who doesn't experience that? But still we can still have fun. Just be wise spending it. No for expensive things to buy, go for the lesser. Go on picnic to the park instead of going to restaurants. . . Sort of that.

Well, if one lacks money, one would be so much overworked to make his or her ends meet that one cannot enjoy life. may be he or she might have some moments of joy, yet not much. So a decent amount of money is required in life.

I think so,we can't go everywhere without lots of money on vacation.but we can also enjoy ourselves without too much material things.For example,we can go to canoe with friends in our hometown,or to go hiking and so on.We are also wealthy in spirit although we are not so rich .

Money cannot buy happiness, the closest thing money can buy is comfort and quality of life. Nonetheless, everything money can buy is superficial, just as how money is on its own. I think enjoying life is solely based on perspectives, happiness is a choice after all, it's either you choose to view spy our life as overly stressful or you choose to view it in a way that everything you do gives you a feeling of satisfaction. I won't deny the fact that I'd want t experience a lot if things as well, go to places and all, but I think that a vacation is most meaningful not because of where you spent it but it's because of who you spent it with. :) that I think is priceless. :)

Enjoying life do requires money in most cases but if money is lacking then there are also other ways to enjoy life which will not require money. As one saying goes "Happiness is being contented with what you have." I think this quotation goes true with enjoyment. "Enjoyment is appreciating what you have and giving thanks for those things around you." You can enjoy your family even if you don't go on vacation to places which will require you to spend money. Like for a example a Dad who on his day off just plays basketball with his kids even and enjoys the whole day just being with them at home. Simple things like that can be very enjoyable. Enjoying life depends on the persons attitude toward life and not on how much money he carries on his pocket.

Although there is a saying that money cannot bring you happiness it's not true for me. If I don't have at least the necessary money to cope with the living I become depressive. Even I had panic attacks because I lost my job and living without any income is very bad. I felt it myself. A steady source of money is very comforting and brings security.

True enough that having no money to set a get together is a deep sigh.However, there are also way to spend the vacation enjoyable within your own home just be creative. Watch movie thru your player, cook the untouched recipes of yours, go to malls and just eat and enjoy window shopping. Go to parks. Visit your friends and relatives. Take time to relax and do not spend the hours by getting bored. This thinking will not help you add fund to your purse.

I guess it depends on what it takes for you to enjoy life. If taking a walk in the woods is something you enjoy and you live near the woods, then it wouldn't take any money to enjoy life. Some people think they can't enjoy life unless they are spending money and I really feel sorry for those people. Have you ever seen the commercial with the slogan "simple pleasures are the best"? There are a lot of little things people can do that don't cost money that will help them to enjoy life more.

No, 'joy' does not mix with 'lack.' That's one thing I miss about childhood: back then--if you couldn't do something--it was because 'it wasn't time for that yet' (i.e. mother-and-father had something else planned for you first); now--if you can't do something--you just can't!

That is so true, but I enjoy my life with out money. With me it's always been: If I have the money I don't have the time, or if I have the time I don't have the money. Could never get those at the same time. So I quit playing the game. Some would say I settled. Maybe so, but I am not aggrevaited about it anymore. Sometimes if I want to do something, I just go ahead and do it. Take care of things when I get back.

I dont really use my money to enjoy. Im weird isnt it. Maybe i do once in while, but its not a big deal to me. I can enjoy life without it. I enjoy to see the smiles of my children and spending time with my family members. I enjoy being with them. There are lots of ways to enjoy without even spending a penny.

Yes I can enjoy even in less money because I am not interested in traveling, not interested in wear gold set or fancy set. Not interested in wearing lot of new sari only interested in eating various types of foods so I can enjoy life.

It is a bit difficult but I think it is possible. It is all in the mind. A person may find life enjoyable by just with friends and loved ones. As long as they are happy, he is happy and this is also part of enjoyment. Life can be enjoyable as long as one can make a difference to another's life. Many things can also be done without money consideration.

There are ways to enjoy life. If we are lack of money, perhaps a cheaper vacation would be considered good enough. The most important thing is to be happy and nothing could be more happier than to spend time with your own family, even though in a cheap way.
